  • Tumbleweed…

    Does anyone else care about having a blog any longer?

  • Excessive uptime(!?)

    Somewhere on the internet there’s a mailserver with a larger uptime, I guess? I don’t think anyone dares to reboot it …. (this is a server the customer was going to migrate off about 5 years ago …. somehow it’s still in use) (2290 days is a little over 6 years)
